    - by Transplace

    We definitely think that luck was on our side for the 13th Annual Shipper Symposium! This year, we wanted to bring together some of the brightest minds in the industry and showcase some of the boldest transportation strategies. And considering how many leading industry experts, analysts, academics and practitioners gathered at the Four Seasons in Dallas in early May, we certainly did just that! We had an amazing time connecting our customers and partners with each other, as well as listening to a number of insightful speakers discuss both strategic business solutions and current trends that have a worldwide impact on the transportation of goods.

    Getting In Front Of the Capacity Crunch

    - by Transplace

    Capacity. It’s a word that’s constantly on the minds of shippers. Is there enough capacity available to handle my freight? When will capacity become tight? What strategies can we implement now to prepare for a capacity shortage?

    This past winter left shipments frozen in their tracks, and you didn’t have to be in the Midwest or Northeast to experience the effects. Companies everywhere were left scrambling to secure available capacity to move their backlog of freight and many were unable to receive and make deliveries on time. While things have gone back to normal since the Polar Vortex, shippers know that capacity will once again become tight and will impact their supply chains.

    Shipper Symposium Snippets!

    Twelve years in and we couldn’t be more thrilled that our Shipper Symposium has become such a great gathering of economic, transportation and logistics leaders.  Connecting our customers and partners with each other and listening to speakers address everything from NAFTA and cross-border shipping to fueling talent into supply chain logistics has led to true collaboration in the transportation industry. 2014 just might be at the top of our list for the best Shipper Symposium yet!

    Remembering some of the things we learned from this year’s speakers got us thinking about how we could share these Shipper Symposium tidbits with you.
